Helmerich & Payne International Drilling Co. (H&P) can confirm a steady increase in drilling activity in Texas from 2008 to present in each of the Texas shale plays that you listed. We would like to note that H&Ps safety performance during this period has led the drilling industry to all-time low injury and fatality rates. H&Ps Total Recordable Injury Rate (TRIR) as measured by U.S. Dept of Labor (OSHA) and Bureau of Labor Statistics has been 60-65% below the U.S. Land drilling industry average during this period. H&P has also posted industry-leading results as reflected in (a) fewest injuries per 200,000 manhours worked (0.78), (b) fewest injuries per million feet drilled (1.0), (c) lowest workers comp losses per manhour worked ($0.26), (d) lowest workers comp losses per foot drilled ($0.09) and (e) an insurance modifier rate (EMR = 0.38) that has been more than 60% below the Oil & Gas extraction industry average for the last 10-years for number of workers comp claims and severity of those claims as measured by the insurance industry. With kind regards, Helmerich & Payne, Inc
